International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

1st– 30th September 2021

An initiative started in 2010 by former US president Barack Obama, the spotlight is shone, in September each year, on the many thousands of children who are diagnosed with cancer and how we can raise awareness, support families and raise vital funds to continue much needed research. This annual event is symbolised by the wearing of a gold ribbon and is taken up by the many cancer charities who do amazing work that touch the lives of these children.

Some forms of cancer are mainly or exclusively only seen in children and that is something that is highlighted by the awareness month. Children thankfully can be more resilient to cancer and cancer treatments than adults and there are many cases of triumph where children make a complete recovery and grow up to lead a normal life. Continued awareness, education and support are so important.

Children With Cancer UK, is one such charity that strives to make that difference. Every year they invest millions into cutting edge research which can help understand why children get cancers and how best they can be treated. They also focus on welfare projects that provide better care and practical support for the patients as well as their families.

Charities such as this and the fight against cancer relies heavily on support and contributions from many, many different people – individuals and companies and Eden Private Staff is proud to be one of them.

So, why not challenge yourself in September and do something amazing too!…

This September, during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, challenge yourself to run, walk or jog 25km, 50km or 100km for Children with Cancer UK in The Virtual Gold Ribbon Run
